The Ultimate Guide to Moon-Gazing in Singapore: Where to Catch the Best Views this Mid-Autumn Festival

Mid-Autumn Festival isn’t just about mooncakes; it’s about a full moon, too.

This year, mark your calendars for 29 September to bask in the glow of the fullest and brightest moon.

Let’s embark on a moonlit adventure to the best spots in Singapore where you can enjoy moon-gazing at its finest as we look at the nine best places to look at the moon (just don’t point at it).

Springleaf Nature Park: A Moonlit Sanctuary in the Concrete Jungle

Once a humble kampung and rubber plantation, Springleaf Nature Park has transformed into a haven for moon enthusiasts.

Opened in 2014, it is nestled near the Central Catchment Nature Reserve, offering a rich biodiversity that is home to over 80 species of resident and migratory birds. Quite a feat in Singapore’s “concrete jungle”, wouldn’t you agree?

Springleaf stands as a beacon of tranquillity amidst the city’s hustle and bustle, famed for being one of the least light-polluted spots in Singapore. It’s the go-to place for astronomy clubs and a perfect spot for those residing in the North to catch a glimpse of the moon at its brightest.

Lorong Halus Bridge: A Moonlit Stroll Down Memory Lane

As you stand on the bridge, with the expansive sky stretching on both sides, you might find yourself cracking a joke or two about the “moon river” that flows beneath. But remember, no cycling over the bridge, we wouldn’t want to moonwalk into any accidents, would we?
